Margot Cleveland, law professor and former law clerk for a quarter century for a Federal Appeals Court judge, writing in The Federalist points out that Trump-appointed FBI director Christopher Wray has shown his totalitarian character by equating legitimate criticism of the FBI’s Gestapo behavior for invading the home of President Trump with an attack by Trump supporters on law and order. Not only was the invasion gratuitous, it was done for the sole purpose of creating the impression that President Trump is a felon, as was the FBI’s seizure of Trump’s passport to prevent his flight from “justice.” America now has a Federal Bureau of Investigation that is a Ministry of the Interior Gestapo serving a dictatorial political movement.

Cleveland puts it this way:

“FBI Director Christopher Wray’s Thursday statement represents a disgraceful attempt to silence critics by conflating condemnation of the bureau’s conduct with violence and threats against law enforcement. This outrageous tactic will not work, and that Wray resorted to it confirms he no longer deserves to be FBI director.” https://thefederalist.com/2022/08/12/fbi-director-calls-legit-criticism-of-corrupt-fbi-violence-but-we-werent-born-yesterday/

Wray never deserved to be FBI director. He is just another of Trump’s many mindless appointments. As I predicted in 2016, Trump was ignorant of Washington and would staff his administration with the very ruling elite that he declared himself against. He would be destroyed by his own appointees, and he was. And now his own FBI director is trying to frame Trump up for conviction and put him in prison. Who is there to stop him?

As I wrote yesterday, the Democrats are conducting a Nazi-style Putsch for a one-party state in front of our eyes, but the fact is so horrific that many Americans will refuse to see it.

Wray knows that the FBI is a political police for the Democrats and has a key role in the Putsch under way. That is why he appeals to patriotic law and order conservatives in order to distract them from the reality. Here is the tyrant Wray conflating legitimate criticism of the FBI with “threats of violence against law enforcement:”

“Unfounded attacks on the integrity of the FBI erode respect for the rule of law and are a grave disservice to the men and women who sacrifice so much to protect others. Violence and threats against law enforcement, including the FBI, are dangerous and should be deeply concerning to all Americans.”

Yes, the FBI’s commitment “to protect others”–like the FBI’s commitment to protect the lives of Randy Weaver’s wife and son at Ruby Ridge, and the lives of the 100+ victims of the FBI’s poison gas and tank attack on the Waco compound of a religious sect that had violated no law. As they cannot tell who their enemy really is, little doubt many law and order conservatives will flock to the FBI’s defense against “conspiracy theorists who want to discredit the FBI.”

ORDER IT NOW

Too many Americans are so indoctrinated and misinformed that they cannot comprehend what is happening. Even Margot Cleveland herself is partially lost. She attributes the fake “Steele Dossier’ not to Hillary, the Democrats, CIA and FBI, but to “Russian disinformation to meddle in our affairs.” This bogus explanation is the only acceptable one in Republican circles. America’s enemy must be a foreign one, and the Russians have had that role since WW II. It is much more comfortable for conservatives that the enemy is abroad and not at home.

It is the stupidity and lack of fighting spirit of the Republican Party and American conservatives that has convinced the Democrats that they can succeed with a Nazi-style putsch. How many Devin Nunes, Jim Jordans, Donald Trumps, and Ron DeSantis are there? Most Republicans, like Mitch McConnell, are part of the corrupt process themselves. There is hardly a handful who are fighting for America and the Constitution. Almost all are fighting for their campaign contributions from the vested interests who rule us.

As I pointed out yesterday, the Putsch has widened beyond victimizing President Trump. Republican senators are in the crosshairs, including the former chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee Lindsay Graham, and now Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is also being subpoenaed by a Fulton County, Georgia, district attorney who regards Giuliani’s efforts in behalf of electoral integrity to be criminal actions.

The Democrats advance their Putsch carefully. They always launch their attacks in Democrat jurisdictions where they know that the Democrat prosecutors and judges are devoid of integrity, which is why they were appointed. These prosecutors and judges are part of the corrupt system the Democrats have created. They know why they are there, and they serve their intended purpose, which is power, not justice.

The Republicans are so stupid and hidebound in their belief in America that they cannot comprehend what is happening. This means that there is no organized force to resist the Putsch.

Tell me, how are disinformed and unorganized people going to stop a Putsch by the Democrat Party and their Department of Justice, CIA and FBI allies? Republicans are out of their minds if they think the Democrats are going to permit an honest election in November.
